@[4668:@Alicia Willis] I thought it might help someone else as well. Fingerings/Picking Motions are Debatable. Slow it down 0.5 or maybe less, 1.5 is roughly normal speed. Some parts I added vibrato where it wasn't in the book. Hear the song I found a crucial note I was missing going over it again. The Pinch Harmonic + Vibrato at the end is an aggressive one, just recently noticed that. I learned it with the book, it took me a long time to understand it. ( Still learning ) I've been reflecting this solo for over 10 years.
This is me practicing just the arpeggio's for the CAGED system from the lessons! I'm really digging this kind of practicing for myself. Playing things slower has me antsy, but I'm retaining this info better all while learning the fretboard more. Major and Pentatonic scales are feeling close to good, so I'm aiming to be able to play those together later in the week!
Learned 2 ways now to do the scale and my alternate picking feels much more natural, had to take a couple days off wrists started hurting haha.
It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a help video in true awkward Alicia Style, but I’m back with an even better mom bun and more eye bags ! 🤣 Seriously though, I’ve been playing a little less than a year so this solo is teaching me a plethora of techniques and I’m working on a bunch.Hector has been fucking amazing (but I don’t want to aggravate him to death) there’s one spot where I’m not sure if it’s just more practice needed or if you guys might have some secret wisdom to share ! Let me know Fam! ❤️ Edit: so in the video I say 2 notes after the bend but it’s really 3 notes lol. I get nervous and screw up what I’m trying to say. 😬

Redo of a cover of the intro to The Stage by Avenged Sevenfold. Hope y'all enjoy! This is pretty difficult to nail down but once you have it, it's super fun ...
i first heard gogina when magma came out and i really liked the art of dying album i was focusing too my on my strumming hand at the start and was doing weird stuff again some parts i can play at full speed but it's difficult, it was my 2nd playthrough first at 70% than 80% good workout, no solo. the part when it goes to the 15th fret i don't likw to play casue the volume gets rally loud haven't played this in awhile
Here is a little part of one of my new song. It will be soon available. Subscribe to my channel to watch the full project soon. Don't hesitate to share it wi...
Never thought I would play this song at 100% speed but here I go. Endurance fails me though and towards minute 2 or 2:30 I lose the timing and try to catch up with the song. My challenge now is to be able to release some tension from my arms to be able to play the full rhythm clean
Hi guys! I’m back with a full cover of Zacky’s part for Hail to the King! Dedicated to our Mama Cat, Jak. Thank you for always being my number one fan and supporter since day one! ♥ I hope this does you proud!
For me the biggest and best “prize” in coming in 2nd on the Rockstar Student award is the lessons with the all mighty Hector Trejo to learn my favorite Avenged solo. I’ve only seriously been playing less than a year and this is so different from anything I’ve attempted before so I was a bit weary to post my journey, but seeing CJ’s updates has giving me the courage I needed ! So I wanted to share with you guys as I work on this. Today was my second lesson with Hector. There are so many techniques and things I’ve never done, and while it’s honestly awful now, I know what I need to work on and how to get there and at the end of the day I feel like this is going to be a major learning moment for me ! No matter how long it takes, I’m determined to get it, get it right, and make the school and Mr. Trejo proud ! Just because you’re a beginner doesn’t mean you can’t aim big ! Practice until your fingers bleed ! Lol. Okay maybe not that much, but you get the jist 🤣

trying to work on proper finger placement. Last run through I didnt do too bad. apologies about fan didnt realize it was facing me
So this is my first video on the school!! I decided like 40 minutes ago that I’m gonna get over my fear of posting a video on here and just do it! I was always too embarrassed that I can only play rhythm guitar but I finally figured out that it’s not a bad thing and actually quite important! So I chose a song I’m good at and did it! Enjoy!!
The struggle continues....but we getting there. Again thanks to the wonderful @[77:@Hector Trejo] for teaching me one of my favourite avenged tunes!

Finally finished another lesson on the CAGED system, some are long for me. Bar 13 I got inspired and got the 1st. Bar 20 I heard this old song in my head went something like the 2nd and than on bar 30 for some reason I got the 3rd one. I kept doing the parts of the lesson up till after the string skipping part. Than today finally finished the rest of the lesson. It probably has nothing to do with C or something, but I thought it was cool.
